SDCC: Quentin Tarantino on ‘Kill Bill 3:’ “Never Say Never”

By July 11, 2015

Today at Comic-Con International’s Hateful Eight panel, director Quentin Tarantino revealed a surprising possibility: the Bride may still appear in a future film.

According to Tarantino himself (via IGN), the director was asked whether or not the oft-rumored third installment of the Kill Bill series could still happen. His answer was in the positive.

Never say never to Kill Bill 3. Uma [Thurman] would really like to do it. We talk about it every once in a while. Vernita’s daughter just needs to get a little older.

He’s referring to Vernita Green, who was played by Vivica A. Fox in Kill Bill Vol. 1. In that film, Vernita’s daughter witnessed the Bride, played by Uma Thurman, kill her mother. She then made the daughter a cryptic promise. See the scene below.

Tarantino’s feelings on a possible third installment have fluctuated a lot over the past ten years. While he said he was actively developing the third “volume” of Kill Bill as early as 2004, he repeated his intention to create a new story for the Bride five years later. Then, in December of 2012, Tarantino stated that he was abandoning plans for a third Kill Bill film, instead hoping to focus on other, unrelated projects. Now that he may have changed his tune once more, it should be interesting to see whether or not he actually chooses to develop a follow-up. Ambrosia Kelley, the young actress who played Vernita’s daughter, is now 19 years old. Maybe in a couple more years, he’ll look into bringing her back for a new journey of vengeance against the Bride.

Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight hits theaters on Christmas day in 70mm, and will be given a wide release on January 8th, 2016.
